Any time you think for yourself, your boss finds some way of letting you know that’s not really what you were hired for.
Your efforts are rewarded when you follow the rules, and criticized when you get a creative urge to contribute to the company.
You’re kept un-informed as to the long term plans and vision of the business, and managed to “just stick to doing your job.”
When you felt like you really got the job done and were expecting acknowledgement, instead you got criticism and feedback on how to improve and do a better job.
You know there is a GPS tracking devise on your vehicle, your time is monitored daily, and your emails are being checked.
Would you feel trusted? Empowered?
